Aaron “tenderlove” Patterson http://usesthis.com/interviews/aaron.patterson/ Firefox has an extremely nice feature that I like for web development: if you hit ‘ (single quote) it will bring up a search box, but the search box only searches through links on the page. Then you can hit enter to navigate to that link. That way I can avoid […]
C-u M-! date I’ve started using Emacs again. I can’t remember what sent me to the Literate Devops with Emacs video by Howard Abrams, but the idea of running code within Emacs org-mode was enough for me to fire it up and relearn the key combinations.

top-5-new-python-modules-of-2015 I suspect that tools like this will make things more enjoyable. At any rate, I’m just starting to mentally sync with what could be done with these tools. It’s not that I can’t imagine applications, but I’m just starting to have the right types of problems (and questions) that make the tools useful enough […]
learning python resources This looks like a natural extension of resources as I continue to work my way through python. At some point I’ll hit a wall and need additional insights to resolve my query.
Build a web browser with 20 lines of Python https://www.linuxvoice.com/build-a-web-browser-with-20-lines-of-python/ This looks interesting in light of my recent delving into python. Self-reminder to take a look. May report back later.
